Alaska Business Legal Elite
Welcome to the inaugural Alaska Business Legal Elite! This list features Alaska’s most talented attorneys as nominated by their peers.

Here’s what we did: earlier this year we invited licensed Alaskan attorneys to nominate licensed lawyers practicing in Alaska who they think excel in providing legal services. Once the online survey process was completed, a third-party data collection specialist verified that the nominated lawyers have a current license. The final list of Legal Elite represents about 8 percent of practicing lawyers in the state, all of whom were selected by those who are intimately knowledgeable about what it takes to be a good lawyer.

The lawyers you’ll find in the Legal Elite occupy a range of legal roles, from working for the State to in-house counsel to traditional law firms. That means this list is not a directory of attorneys for hire, though many of them would be happy to provide you with legal services. It is instead a representation of the cream of the legal industry crop in Alaska.

The Legal Elite are Alaska’s top lawyers as nominated by their peers. Throughout the month of March and into April, locally licensed lawyers had the opportunity to recognize other lawyers that they see excelling in the legal profession. To create the list, Alaska Business contracted DataJoe Research. We recognize that there are many good lawyers who are not shown in this representative list. This is only a sampling of the huge array of talented professionals within the region. Inclusion in the list is based on the opinions of responding lawyers in the region. We take time and energy to ensure fair voting, although we understand that the results of this survey nomination and Internet research campaign are not an objective metric. We certainly do not discount the fact that many good and effective lawyers may not appear on the list.
